This book focuses on dilemmas inherent in the practice of assessment in the contemporary context. New forms of assessment are being introduced in all sectors of education and training, and the culture of assessment is shifting. The authors in this volume discuss the practice of assessment, reporting empirical research on modes of assessment within a variety of educational contexts, while also addressing conceptual and theoretical aspects of assessment. Though most publications on assessment do not go beyond one sector or phase of education and only consider assessment in one national context, this volume is cross-sectoral and international in scope. This groundbreaking book illustrates the conceptual and practical dilemmas of assessment and raises issues that are relevant and applicable across a variety of modes of assessment and across various contexts where assessment takes place.

Wanda, ein kleines polnisches Mädchen, trägt in der Schule jeden Tag dasselbe fadenscheinige blaue Kleid, obwohl sie sagt, dass sie zu Hause in ihrem Schrank hundert wunderschöne Kleider hat. Die anderen Kinder in ihrer Klasse glauben ihr das natürlich nicht, und als Peggy anfängt, Wanda deswegen tagtäglich zu hänseln, machen alle mit. Auch Peggys beste Freundin Maddie ist mit dabei, aber im Geheimen fragt sie sich, ob sie den Mut aufbringen wird, sich gegen ihre Klasse zu stellen und Wanda zu verteidigen. Bis Wanda plötzlich eines Tages nicht mehr in die Schule kommt und es sich aufklärt, was es mit den hundert Kleidern auf sich hat, ist es schon fast zu spät. Doch Maddie und Peggy lernen daraus, wie wichtig Verständnis und Mitgefühl im Leben sind ... Eleanor Estes zu Herzen gehende Geschichte, ausgezeichnet mit dem wichtigsten Kinderbuchpreis Amerikas und verpflichtende Schullektüre, berührt seit über 70 Jahren Leser alle Altersstufen mit ihrer zeitlosen Botschaft von Mitgefühl und Verstehen.

The concept and results of achievement testing are the subject of serious conversation for many Americans – from educators to legislators. However, few teachers and parents view such testing as an integral part of teaching and learning. Testing standards of key education organizations and opinions of concerned citizens may be fleeting guides. The history of testing, the process for developing a formal test, testing abuse, misuse, and limitations are not widely known or understood even though we realize that testing is critical and here to stay. Achievement Testing explains the complicated concepts in a clear and user-friendly way to beginning teachers and students, as well as to experienced teachers who are looking for guidance in the ever-changing educational landscape.

Given the prevalence of student diversity, schools are struggling to find ways to help with the implementation of CCSS. With the wide range of student learning styles, socioeconomic backgrounds and life experiences, one key to meeting this challenge is the use of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Originally developed to address the instructional needs of students with disabilities, UDL is now being embraced as an answer to creating learning environments where all students, regardless of their individual differences, can meet the CCSS. Designed for classroom teachers, this guide provides practical strategies and best practices for utilizing UDL as a means to help students successfully access and achieve the CCSS.
